TC’s flashbacks had hearts everywhere breaking.
This is the video I made at the Night Ball, at the Night ItaCon 2.0
They were so sweet I wanna cry
Loosely based around the ‘poetry scene’ of 5x03. In his pursuit to understand the beauty of spoken words Leon accepts that with his shy nature he may never grasp the true concept of poetry. Then Gwaine shows him there is something called poetic license to consider.

You’ve got to love how strong and dedicated the Merlin fandom is.
Our (amazing) show has been over for about a year and a half now, but we’re still going strong and you’re all great for that. Give yourself a pat on the back!
We need to keep it up because Merlin will “live long in the minds of men”.
‘Showrunner on NBC series THE NIGHT SHIFT is looking for an assistant to start immediately. Work would begin in LA, move to Albuquerque in a couple of months, and stay through the production of 14 episodes…’

- Give me a pairing and an an AU setting; I will write you a three-sentence fic.
Gwaine is perceptive enough to realize that there is more
to Merlin than meets the eye and loyal enough to wait
patiently for his best friend to come forth with the truth,
whatever it may be, because even he knows no mere
servant chases after his master across the kingdoms
He finds Merlin brooding all by his lonesome in a dark
corner of a tavern located just inside of Essetir’s borders;
One knowing look into Merlin’s grief-stricken eyes and
suddenly the whole facade slips and the masks (the bouts
of clumsiness, the smiles, the feigned ignorance) are all
dropped, the lies are revealed, and secrets are finally
spilled all in one agonizing confession filled with such
anguish that his own heart breaks a little further.
He wants to say that Princess will come around eventually
but he’s selfish enough not to partly because he doesn’t
know that for sure and partly because he can’t bring
himself to; Instead, he says, “Titles don’t mean anything…
It’s what’s inside—” He squeezes Merlin’s shoulder firmly
and fixes him with a gaze filled with determination and
undying devotion. “—That counts.”
